Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Gamesa has consolidated its maintenance technology by developing the Gamesa SMP system, which is based on the analysis of vibrations through accelerometer-type sensors.
Gamesa SMP detects failures in wind turbines' main components, allowing the wind turbines to remain operational for a longer period of time and reducing the number of malfunctions, according to the company.
Gamesa SMP incorporates vibration analysis, which optimizes the amount of time devoted to failure diagnosis and to the analysis of a greater number of wind turbines. The equipment is reduced in both size in cost, is easy to assemble and is adaptable to changing operating conditions, says Gamesa.
Gamesa is currently developing its maintenance activity from its service department in Pamplona, Spain, on 282 wind farms.
